The Bad Days: Stories You Didn’t Hear from Spain

Wow what a depressing title. Am I going through a goth phase? Stay tuned to find out…… Of course not, my sister did enough for the two of us (love you Sara). No, I wanted to share some things with you. Life is hard, and strange, and also magnificent. I’m a story teller here, sharing…

Granada : Alhambra, Tapas, and the World Being Smaller than it Seems

I’m broke. Really, I don’t have money to be traveling around Europe, or even Spain for that matter but guess who has her middle finger up to reason? (It’s me guys. I think that’s an obvious rhetorical question). As you know, I’m studying abroad in Spain for the summer, spending most of my days in…

Salamanca: The Youngest Oldest City and A Love Story

I honestly can’t focus while typing this; it’s been difficult switching between English and Spanish so I’ve just been incredibly lazy and ignored everything in English that’s unnecessary (aka writing for my beloved blog, sorry everyone). Plus, I just keep playing Despacito over and over again, so of course I’m not going to get anything…

Odd Thoughts: June 12th in Madrid

Have you ever been anywhere and felt immediately at home? For some people it’s in a best friend’s house or the library during finals week (just kidding, that’s just being surrounded by suffering). I recently had that sensation in Madrid this weekend, and on May 30th when I first arrived. I’m a little bit of…

Madrid: Sungate One Hostel & All the Sites to See

On Memorial Day in the U.S, I sat in the airport waiting for my flight, feeling incredibly stupid for not only mistaking the time of the flight but also for forgetting my adapter AND euros at home. In the end it didn’t really matter (it cost me quite a bit, don’t be like me). At…

My Summer in Spain

Hello all you lovely, freshly baked cupcakes! If you don’t know me, you haven’t had the pleasure (or as some would call it, annoyance) of my non-stop gush of how excited I am to be spending this summer in Espana! I’ll be taking Spanish classes and finishing up my Spanish minor. If that doesn’t sound dope…

Peace Pie in St.Augustine, FL

This place was groovy man I had to say that for my sanity. Peace Pie was absolutely groovy though, I promise. I got so excited when I found it down a little alley way. The store made its mark in St.Augustine with its original take on ice cream sandwiches. I wouldn’t think to get an…

Spring Break in St.Augustine, FL

Hello all you lovely people! Hopefully wherever you are you aren’t too cold. If so you’re about to be incredibly jealous of what you’re about to read. I’m in Floridaaaaaa It’s almost the end of spring break for me unfortunately, but I’m here for the rest of the week visiting my best friend, Holly. We’re…

Williamsburg, VA

It’s funny how some people are enthralled by a vacation to Florida or the Caribbean. How can I blame them though? The warm weather and clear blue ocean is a happy place for nearly anyone. It’s a bit overrated though (and by overrated, I mean it’s too damn expensive for a college student). You can…

Favorite Places : Iron Rooster

My main goal in life is to be like Bilbo Baggins: Break out of my comfort zone and anxiety prone family to go on an adventure. Also, how can you enjoy any journey without second breakfast, brunch, and lunch? Whenever I go out, I keep that in mind. Half the fun of traveling is eating….

New York City

After a weekend of over indulgence, I can already tell when I step on the scale, a wave of regret will wash over me. Oh, but the food. It was worth it. If you’d like to see only photos of my trip, click here! This time around, I didn’t go to NYC for the food…
